Perth local Toby Beard doesn’t feel so local these days. The singer/songwriter has spent more time touring the globe lately, so it’s a rare, but special occasion to catch her in her hometown. Playing at major festivals and headlining her own shows all over the place, Toby Beard’s music is certainly getting out there. But Perth fans are waiting in anticipation for her return.
The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland will get their ears wrapped around her latest six-track EP Fall Into Me in the flesh before Perth. Currently spending three months in Europe with her wife Amy and two children, Toby is booked in for 37 shows throughout five countries to show off the new release. Perth will get their turn when she heads back home to perform at the Fly By Night Musicians Club in Fremantle, Saturday 24th June.
To create her masterpiece, Toby teamed up with Eskimo Joe’s Joel Quartermain to record and produce half of the EP. Quartermain also plays drums, bass, keys and electric guitar. The other half was recorded by Rada Studio‘s Matt Gio, also playing drums and bass on the tracks.
“Working with Joel Quartermain is always amazing. He is such a creative soul and belongs in the studio. Matt and I gelled instantly too, and I am stoked with the end product”
Toby’s launches are always impressive. Big band, big sound, big surprises and big stage at the Fly’s Victoria (Main) Hall. Renowned for her energetic, raw and charismatic stage presence, Toby uses her voice, songwriting and guitar skills to magically weave together roots, rock and reggae.
